EQUINOR TO DEVELOP IRPA GAS DISCOVERY IN THE NORWEGIAN NORTH SEA

formerly known as Asterix, to the Norwegian Minister for Petroleum and Energy.
The development will ensure activity and stable gas deliveries from Aasta Hansteen until 2039. The Irpa discovery, formerly known as Asterix, was proven in 2009 and is in deep water in the Norwegian Sea, 340 kilometres west of Bodø. Expected recoverable gas resources are estimated at approximately 20 billion standard cubic metres, equivalent to 124 million boe or the consumption of nearly 2.4 million British households over a period of seven years.
The gas will be phased into existing infrastructure over Aasta Hansteen and transported to the Nyhamna gas processing plant via Polarled. From there, gas will be transported via the Langeled pipeline system to customers in the UK and continental Europe.
The discovery will be developed with three wells and an 80-kilometre pipeline to the Aasta Hansteen platform.
Irpa is located in the Vøring Basin in the Norwegian Sea, about 80 kilometres west of the Aasta Hansteen platform, and 340 km west of Bodø.
Laying in a water depth of 1350 meters the discovery was proven in 2009.
